I talked about the Tea Party movement.
My call however was not for someone to start a national Tea Party Movement (#BritishTea). Far from it. That is too large a job. All I was calling for was for people to start their own local voting blocs in their area. It doesn't have to be a roaring success from day one - nothing worthwhile ever is. It just needs starting. One person membership is enough for day one. All you need to do is have a determination to start it. Someone just needs to be that person in an area. I can't shout it loudly enough that the first stage is such a simple one that just has to be a determination to start it, simply because you know something much better than what we have now is possible.
Who is that person - well it's you. If you've ever found yourself moaning at the TV - it's you! If you've ever found yourself shaking your head at a newspaper story about politics - it's you! If you've ever looked around Britain and found yourself wondering what went wrong - it's you!
This time it is all about you.
Don't worry about where you're going to go from here so that you can make a difference - I'm going to try and help you with that. I know you're alone right now or at least you feel that way. I'm going to add more on this to try to help you. It feels enormous, I know. That's why I'm trying to keep this in small manageable steps as far as possible.
All you need to do right now:
- Decide you'll start it in your constituency- even if you intend for someone else to take over long term
- Bookmark this site so you can come back or subscribe to it.
- If you don't have one - get a Twitter account and follow me @restoregb
- Stay informed - those bloggers over on the right of this page are a great place to start
